Types of Employment


Seasonal 

The majority of positions at The Preservation Society of Newport County are seasonal in nature.  This means that periods of employment are directly tied to the seasons that our guests visit us.  The main season begins in early April and continues on until mid-October.  Seasonal employees receive a 10% premium when working on weekends or holidays.  

Our secondary tourism season, from late October until year end, marks the approach of the winter season, when our employment need is at its lowest.  In most cases, employment ceases at the end of the secondary season, but is often renewed at the beginning of the next season.  Many Preservation Society employees plan their vacations around these gaps.  

Full Time 

Approximately 115 positions within The Preservation Society represent full time, year-round employment.  These positions are usually based on a 40 hour work week, and include a variety of benefits, including access to health and dental insurance.
